Rhodes College Hires Liebig Juli as Assistant Lacrosse Coach

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Former Division I standout Juli Liebig has been named assistant lacrosse coach at Rhodes College for the 2013-2014 season.

Liebig graduated from Longwood University in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science degree in kinesiology with a concentration in exercise science. Liebig also completed her Masters of Arts in psychology at Washington College while serving as the lacrosse team's graduate assistant.

“We are very excited to bring such an outstanding player to our coaching staff” said head women's lacrosse coach Brice Queener. “Juli has a lot of valuable experience at the collegiate level, and that knowledge will easily transfer to helping our program grow.”

A team captain as a senior, Liebig was named the National Lacrosse Conference's Goalie of the Year twice in her four years and was an all-conference first-team selection. She finished her senior season ranked first in her conference and 16th in all of Division I in save percentage (.470), 13th in all of Division I in total saves (158), and ninth in Division I in ground balls per game (3.17).

She helped her team to back-to-back conference championships as a sophomore and junior and was presented with Longwood's Scholarly Athlete Award. She was also named to the 2011 Virginia Sports Information Directors (VaSID) University Division Women's Lacrosse First Team.

Liebig is a native of Queen Anne Maryland and comes to Rhodes after spending the past two years as an assistant at the Division III collegiate level. Liebig helped direct the Shoremwomen to two Centennial Conference tournaments and this past season the team rewrote program history by earning the most victories in the Spring season. Liebig was also an Assistant Strength and Conditioning Coach while at Washington College, and will be training Lynx as well.

“I am really excited about building the program at Rhodes to be a reputable team,” said Liebig. “Rhodes is a wonderful college and an even better athletic program. I feel lucky to have the opportunity to help Coach Queener and the girls take the program to the next level.”
